4.0 excellentajcollins15 | June 23rd 22

I have come to realize the more theatrical and intense a record is, on top of feeling like a true artist's artistic vision, the more I love an album. This new album from the Texas-based band might be subtle and quiet, but it hits you over the head in emotional delivery, powerful ambient textures, and building instrumental backdrops. The album falls flat in the fact that it feels as if Talk Talk and Ben Howard got together to make Ok Computer by Radiohead; equally as emotional and pretentious. Overall, a truly great record that any fan of the mentioned bands will really love, on top of being a great listen from front to back.

If the new single is any indication, this will be a good time.

Slow that ain't core: it's mostly an ethereal "art" record with a folk atmosphere a la Ben Howard and pedant vocal delivery a la Mark Hollis. Classy, for sure, as well as pretty, but its ambient textures do not always succeed at delivering the emotional leverage the lyrics hinted at. The grand, orchestral tracks manage to do so; the calmer tunes do not. 3.0
